We understand that education is the key to success, and that no one person learns in the same manner. At the YMCA of Greater Syracuse, our Academic Enrichment programs have been developed with these philosophies in mind. Let our qualified teachers and instructors help you reach your academic goals in a way that works best for you!

TUTORING

Does your child need a little boost to continue to succeed in school? Let the Y help! We offer a comprehensive tutoring program to meet your child's every need. Choose between our academic or test prep programs to keep your child on the right track.

Our tutoring program is available to members and non-members alike. Once purchased, each session's time and date is scheduled around your family's busy schedule.

Academic Tutoring

Let our experienced YMCA Tutors assist your child in reaching their academic goals. Our highly qualified tutors work one-on-one with your child to assess his or her strengths and weaknesses. An academic plan is designed and implemented to address challenges with particular topics, exams, homework, and study skills.

SAT/ACT/PSAT/AP Tutoring

Our SAT/ACT/PSAT/AP tutoring starts with the student completing a full practice exam. Once the student has established a baseline for his/her performance on the exam, a customized study plan is created to address areas needing improvement.

Throughout the sessions, the student gains the confidence and skills necessary to climb to his/her top score.

Sessions are one hour in length, and you can purchase multiple sessions at a time.
